Hi oneday,
So sorry to hear you are still struggling with your docs and a diagnosis. I'm sure you remember us saying this before... There is no bleeding with IBS. If you are bleeding at all, especially enough to cause iron deficiency, there is definitely something else going on. Your docs must see this as a red flag and stop thinking you have mental issues.
What type of specialist are you going to see next? You've already seen the GI, correct?
You're having a rough ride.... stick with us and we'll help you through.  (((oneday))

Oneday,
Don't let them docs brush you off with "just IBS." Make sure you point out to them that you're bleeding. Insist they check it out. Even if all you have are hemmies, they should still be taking it seriously.
Good luck on Monday! Keep us posted.
